Are you wondering how you can best get mixed hair back under control? Here are five tips that will help immediately with greasy roots and dry tips!
Your hairline is greasy too quickly, while the tips are getting drier and more brittle? Mixed hair can actually be quite annoying, but it's more common than you probably think. Bad hairstyling doesn't always have to be to blame for the bad hair crisis. Stress, poor nutrition, or a new birth control pill can also throw our hormonal balance off track and make our scalp produce more sebum than usual.
Fortunately, the flat, oily roots and blunt hair lengths do not have to become permanent. Here are the best tips to quickly bring your complicated mixed hair back into balance.
Regardless of whether your hairline has only recently started to become greasy faster or the problem has existed for a long time: It is definitely worth taking a look at your shampoo. Anyone struggling with an oily hairline should refrain from moisturizing shampoos with a high care factor. In contrast to the conditioner, the needs of your scalp play the most important role when choosing a shampoo. If this produces too much sebum, a shampoo should be found that removes excess oil and refreshes and soothes the scalp.
Shampoos with nettle and liquorice extracts regulate sebum production and keep the base fat-free for longer. Ingredients such as lemon, mint, and clay as well as special anti-fat and volume shampoos can also help to bring the hair back into balance.
Tip: If your hair lengths are extremely dry, really only massage your shampoo onto the scalp and into the hairline. Then rinse it out thoroughly and use conditioner for your hair lengths.
Despite your quickly greasy approach, you just can't do without conditioner & Co. because your hair is otherwise like straw on your shoulders? Fortunately, you don't have to either. Care products that make your hair soft and manageable are not prohibited, even if they are greasy. The only thing that matters is using them correctly.
With mixed hair, only the part of the hair that needs it should be supplied with moisture. The scalp and hairline are therefore left out. Hair lengths and especially brittle ends can be smoothly cared for with a hair conditioner.
Do you use hair oil or leave-in care after washing? Then you should be careful when combing your hair: It can quickly happen that we use the brush to distribute the care product over the entire hair. You can get around the problem easily with an extra comb that is only used for your hair lengths.
Hairspray, volumizing foam, saltwater spray - there is now the right product for every hairstyle. But if you want to bring your hair back into balance, you should first forego styling products. On the one hand, hairspray & Co. leaves residues on your scalp despite combing, which makes your hair feel weighted and greasy faster. On the other hand, many styling products are real alcohol bombs that remove moisture from our hair and make our beloved mane brittle and brittle in the long term.
It is best to limit yourself to shampoo and conditioner for a few weeks and then let your hair air dry. If you don't want to do without a hairdryer, you can also add some heat protection spray to the lengths of the hair before drying.
It's not just our make-up brushes that need to be cleaned regularly. Over time, dirt and sebum also collect in our hairbrushes, which can promote a greasy appearance. Therefore, you should clean your brush at least every two weeks.
To do this, first, remove the hair that has collected in the brush. Then fill your sink with water and add a small amount of your shampoo. You can soak the hairbrush in it for a few minutes. Finally, rinse it off again with clean water.
The wrong hairstyle can also give us greasy roots and dry ends. If we wear our hair down, it is automatically more in motion. Not only can this speed up the production of sebum on our scalp, but it also ensures that the ends of the hair on our top rub and become brittle. In addition, we tend to run our hands through our mane much more often with loose hair, which also makes it appear greasy more quickly.
Therefore, tie your hair in a loose bun or ponytail more often - ideally with a hair-friendly elastic band or a stylish silk scarf. This will keep your roots fresh longer and protect the tips.
The approach is greasy, but you have zero time to wash your hair right now? Then you can quickly freshen up your hair with dry shampoo. A dry shampoo that is matched to your hair color is perfect. This not only gives your hair volume but also prevents greasy strands of hair from appearing so dark.
Another way to cheat the greasy approach fresher is to use blotting papers. With practical powder paper, we can not only remove excess serum from our faces. We can also easily dab our hairline and quickly get it free of grease again.
One last important thing: The subject of hair care is always very individual. Only you can judge for yourself whether the tips or products presented by us work for you. If you have persistent hair or scalp problems, it may be advisable to see a skin specialist.
